NS-9 Can One File Do It All?Product not yet rated Contains 2 Component(s)
Speakers: Gianluca Gambarini, D.D.S.; Martin Trope, D.MD| One goal of the lecture is to provide new concepts for clinical assessment of canal complexities, aiming at providing clinical hints whether one file can safely do it all in the shaping procedure or not. Another goal is to illustrate the different actions of endodontic instruments inside the canal,
SP-32 Glide Path and Its ManagementContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speaker: Vivek Hegde, Doctor. With rotary instrumentation becoming the mainstay in endodontics the world over, the importance of the Glide Path cannot be overstated. It isn't a coincidence either that manufacturers are attempting to make great strides in the management of Glide Paths.
NS-19 Root Canal Preparation Instruments: Where Are We Now and Where May We Be Going?Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speakers: L. Stephen Buchanan, D.D.S., F.I.C.D, FACD, Wm. Ben Johnson, D.D.S., FACD, FICD, Louis H. Berman, D.D.S., FACD. The purpose of endodontic instruments is to shape the inside of the root canal system in order to help remove pulp tissue and facilitate the disinfection and obturation of the canal space. Unfortunately, endodontic manufacturers, to avoid instrument separation, produce instruments designed for the clinician with minimal skills.
NS-17 Root Canal Preparation Instruments: Where Are We Now and Where May We Be Going?Product not yet rated Contains 2 Component(s)
Speaker: John T. McSpadden, D.D.S., Ove A. Peters, B.D.S., M.S., Ph.D. The purpose of endodontic instruments is to shape the inside of the root canal system in order to help remove pulp tissue and facilitate the disinfection and obturation of the canal space. Unfortunately, endodontic manufacturers, to avoid instrument separation, produce instruments designed for the clinician with minimal skills.
NS-15 Dentinal Microcracks Developed by Instrumentation and ObturationProduct not yet rated Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speakers: Hagay Shemesh, B.D.S., Ph.D., Marco Aurelio. Versiani, D.D.S., M.Sc., Ph.D. Considering that modern endodontic treatment procedures are basically dependent upon the current-available shaping technology, a comprehensive knowledge of the causal-effect relationship between dentinal microcracks, motor-driven canal preparation and obturation techniques is of paramount importance to predict the optimal safeness of the whole endodontic procedure. This presentation seeks to critically appraise the methodological aspects and the outcome involved in the studies of dentinal microcrack formation after root canal preparation and obturation.
NS-4 Management of Severe Curvatures and Complex Anatomy: A New ApproachContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speaker: Antonios M. Chaniotis, D.D.S., MDSc. The root canal system is often a highly-complicated network of multiplanar curvatures and anastomoses. Dr. Antonis will introduce a novel instrumentation approach called tactile controlled activation (TCA) technique for the predictable and safe enlargement of extremely challenging root canal systems.
SP-34 Mechanical Scouting and Glide Path: When and HowProduct not yet rated Contains 2 Component(s)
Speakers: Nicola M. Grande, D.D.S., PhD, Gianluca Plotino, D.D.S., Ph.D. Glide path has traditionally been obtained manually, using small stainless-steel instruments for the initial scouting of the root canal and bigger stainless-steel files for the pre-flaring before the use of NiTi rotary files. New perspectives in endodontics are the use of small NiTi rotary and reciprocating files during scouting and negotiation procedures to establish the glide path mechanically.
SP-22 Contribution of New Technologies to the Understanding of Complex Root Canal Anatomy and Effective Endodontic TreatmentContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speaker: Raney J. Deschenes, D.M.D., M.S., Magnification, stiff files with active tips, ultrasonic tips, irrigation systems and 3D imaging are the new technological advances which aid the clinician to more predictably locate, negotiate and clean complexities and variations of root canal anatomy, in particular, isthmuses and branching. This presentation will describe an overall approach utilizing these newer technologies to successfully treat complex anatomical cases.
SP-16 Clinical Decisions in Managing Challenging AnatomyContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speaker: Michael S. Marmo, D.M.D., Nickel titanium rotary instruments have made the cleaning and shaping of root canals faster, easier and more efficient than ever before. Using evidence-based literature, we will examine clinical decision-making in managing common anatomic challenges.
CEX-4 Finding the 4th Canal and Hoping There Isn't a 5th or 6th! and CEX-5 Dentin PreservationContains 9 Component(s), Includes Credits
CEX-4: Speaker: James L. Gutmann, D.D.S. A brief look at our historical roots will verify that these anatomical variations have been well known for over 100 years. This presentation will explore all aspects of this contemporary, perceived discovery. CEX-5: Speaker: Eric J. Herbranson, D.D.S., M.S. This course will review the rationale for dentin preservation in conventional endodontic therapy. It will argue that conserving dentin results in stronger teeth, improved fracture resistance and more tooth retention.
